don't exspect much for info, i have tried before. this could be a good thing for they leave all the big ones for us. i tried before because i have to drive over 100 miles to go down there, and with gas prices it sucks. good luck the fish are there, i haven't been down there since derby days in franklin.

where do you fish by granite? I do a lot of fishing south of Sacred Heart for channel cats.

I mostly fish Skalbaken Park for over night camping.But I'll drive to other spots that look good and are close (within sight)to the river.Park two is ok depending on flowage and how deep the hole by the granit outcrops is.Upstream I try the boat landings.Some day I want to bring my 14FT. boat 7 1/2 Hp.But I'm spooked of rivers,I once lost power and went under a docked barge on the mississippi,REAL SPOOKY.How bout you where you fish.Oh ya I catch the flat heads over night at both parks #1 being better.Largest 35LBS two years ago.

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

          Barry is retired. I bought his boat and fished her unitl I got the 38'er. Team Crush is still using the old Whitewater.   Barry does work on my boat occasionally as the first mate.

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
